So we've gone from the Freebirds to the Freebies, er, I mean free bees.

Inspired by Ken's playing great things he heard in other shows, and realising that there are so many shows I've never heard: I'd like a "Ken's Picks" show, or more survivable for Ken, "D.J.'s Picks". Those hosts who feel like it nominate one cut from their show that week, and one person builds a show out of them.

This could also be automated by each host's pick coming with an URI to play it from the archives, and building an m3u playlist out of them.

If it were limited to the late night and early morning shows, which may especially suffer from lack of exposure, call it "Overnight Sensations".

@HH I actually know the person who helped design the silver - egg wastewater treatment center that you can see in Queens! That plant is actually energy-NEGATIVE, it puts more back into the grid than it loses because it uses refined poop as fuel.

@dale - ZTT was founded by Trevor Horn in 1981. Other acts on the label are The Buggles, Art Of Noise, Propaganda, and 808 State.

I stayed at a hotel which provided some no-name soap Made in China. The ingredients were "Soap Base and Fragrance". What the hell is soap base in China? I didn't use it out of fear it might be made from political prisoners or some other god awful thing.
